    dont thinks so
    Yeah, windows users do not understand Linux much, if it was for browsing only it wouldn't be a problem but.....
    You could run Widows in Linux in VM but networking would be nightmare. I think it may be best to let them use a very restricted guest account and hope they don't screw up much. A router with HW firewall and eventually security (expensive) can help.
    2 separate PCs with a manual switch to printer option looks easiest yet. If each machine is set up properly with all the necessary programs installed and a Macrium Reflect backup of it is made on a removable device would bring each computer out of any trouble in 15 minutes.

    How to Easily Reset a Computer Back to a Clean State Each Time It Boots

    problem is that i will have to reinstall office and all other application software - redo the updates. (whick kept saying reverting changes and then restarted- )

    not unwilling to do so its just time consuming.

    and i dont know how many times i office ill allow me to install the same package form the dashboard without requiring a new license.

    thanks for the help
    I think that you can make the image after you install all apps and updates so that the boot time refresh includes the whole desired environment.

    One option you may want to consider is one of the many Internet Cafe management software suites - These will provide you with all you need to set-up, secure, and run your business, they can even organise the billing for you based on time and or data usage

    One example is Smartlaunch , (I am not recommending this for your purposes directly but the information on the link can give you an idea of what is possible)
